Now that Telecom has decided to change their logo and along with it their image, promising things like :

"We're constantly upgrading too While you're enjoying the latest technology, we'll be working hard behind the scenes revising and improving our calling and broadband packages - so you can get on with doing the things that inspire you the most."

How about increasing the data caps, Explorer 15GB / Adventure 25GB is all I'm asking :-)

Also what about making Total Home $90 with 10GB and upgrade to Adventure for $99 :-)

15GB is more than enough or me, I can usually blow 10GB in the first 3 weeks just surfing, watching you tube... Windows friggin updates! So 5GB should be more than enough to cover that final week :-)

Or here's another idea.. data packs...

Why I'm talking about data usage why not have free national traffic, that would increase local content and hopefully decrease international traffic... why not throw some more peering in there just for fun. :-)

I'd just like a better deal on XT Mobile data which is my only option for internet access.
$85 per month for 3GB & $100 per month for 4GB.
B. daylight robbery comes to mind....

just plain websurfing consumes a lot now.

Also, I want to download latest bf2 pack, but it is like over 2 gig. DOh! Need to wait to the end of the month to see if I have enough data allowance left.

It would be nice to get Total Home upgraded but it won't happen. Especially when Total Home Lite is ten bucks cheaper but way more limited. Free National traffic won't happen while Telecom/Telstra refuse to peer with other local providers, which also won't happen any time soon. Every news piece Telecom publish mentions "improvements" to their services, its just a filler line sadly! But hey, always look on the bright side of life a? You could get your wishes Laughing

True total home lite is a waste of time, lite is an understatement and as you said it's only $10 cheaper but by the time you add on a few things I was only going to save $5 a month....

But yeah we can all wish :-)
